I had a wonderful time at OnStage local with my Stampin’ Up! sisters. It was a weekend full of learning, sharing, creating, fellowship, laughs and food. What would a girls trip be without food and giggles?
I have plenty to share. It will take me a few days to process everything that I learned and to share all the amazing swaps and make n takes I made. Please remember I have been sworn to secrecy on some of the new and upcoming product from the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.
In the mean time, I’d like share with you what has been my most favorite Christmas card yet. It’s all about the details in this card.
Fun tips to make this card:
- The card is made with our crumb cake note cards
- The doolie is cut in half to fit on the card
- It’s okay to have the embellishments “hang off” the card base
Sometimes, you just need to simplify your life. Sometimes you just need to make something – even of it is super some and a CASE from the catalog. Life has been crazy the last few months. You know that saying, God isn’t going to give you more than you can handle? Well, I’m about to chat with my Savior about sharing some of the storm with others. So, I CASE’d this card right out of the Holiday catalog (page 28 to be exact). I didn’t do the watercoloring or add the Baker’s twine. I did however emboss the sentiment with the super fabulous Cooper Embossing powder. Sometimes you just need to clear your mind, and recreate. It’s really okay – it will open the creative mind back up.
Sometimes, you just don’t feel it. Which is totally the case with this card. Although, I do have a tip and trick to share with you, but that will come another day. Now looking at it, I am thinking a bit of Wink of Stella or using a Stampin’ Write Maker may give it that little extra something I am looking for. So for now, I’ll share the clean and simple version with you.
I’m really trying to make Christmas cards this year prior to December 24th. Don’t laugh – I know you are thinking the exact same thing – yeah right – never going to happen. This is a super cute, simple, easy to mass produce for Christmas.
Fun tips for this card:
- Use the bookmark punch to decorate the top layer
- Attach ribbon to card stock with a mini dimensional
- Stamp the candy on a scrap piece of paper, then use a circle punch to punch out – and ending with fussy cutting
